A Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is a document that an employer in Canada may need to get before hiring a foreign worker. To apply for an LMIA, you need to provide the following documents:
- Proof of recruitment, such as a copy of the advertisement and information to support where, when, and for how long the position was advertised.
- Business registration or legal incorporation documents (if first LMIA application).
- A job offer letter or contract.
- A copy of the LMIA and the LMIA number.
Please note that the documents required for an LMIA application may vary depending on the type of job offer and the program you are hiring through.
For example, if you are hiring a temporary foreign worker through the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP), you may need to provide additional documentation, such as proof of your efforts to recruit Canadian citizens or permanent residents for the job.
